Call for papers: 2015 issue of Provenance

CFP: 2015 issue of Provenance
Provenance: The Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists, a peer-reviewed scholarly publication, seeks submissions on archival theory and practice for the 2015 issue. Please note that the content of the journal is not limited to the state of Georgia, and articles of local, regional, or national significance are welcome. First-time authors are especially encouraged to submit articles for consideration.

Articles on archival topics outside of theory and practice which meet publication standards will also be considered. Typical papers should be a Word document, 10-20 pages, double spaced, and formatted according to the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Please review information for contributors: http://digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/provenance/policies.html. Articles are to be submitted utilizing Provenance’s new online system: http://digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/provenance/.

For additional information contact Editor Cheryl Oestreicher at: provenance@soga.org. Deadline for contributions is July 31, 2015.
